This week’s Wish List includes ideas I have been gathering up over the past few weeks. If you are heading off to the mall this weekend to hide from the heat (I don’t blame you), you may feel inspired by my picks! Happy shopping and see you again next week!
Clockwise from left:
1 – Ted Baker Dress. I have a couple of weddings to head to this summer back in the UK and have found the dress. This beauty is by Ted Baker and appears to be sold out in the UK already (but still available here in Dubai), so I need to snap it up quick. I love the light mint hue, the jewelled neckline, and the shift style of this dress. It costs AED 1,095 from Ted Baker stores across the UAE.
2 – Aldo Bag. This bag is roomy, simple, and very stylish. I’d be able to throw in everything from makeup to nappies to bottles of water. I need it in my life pronto. It costs AED 260 from Aldo stores across UAE.
3 – House of Nomad Sweatshirt. S*uce is one of my favourite Dubai boutiques and it now has an online store (yippee!) This sweatshirt is top of my wish list. The arabic reads ‘Halawah’, which means ‘Sweets’, and it’s been created to celebrate the boutique’s 10 year anniversary. It costs AED 1,100 and is available online here and at S*uce boutiques across Dubai.
4 – Zara Necklace. Pretty, pretty, pretty! And the perfect thing for wearing on warm summer evenings this summer. It costs AED 195 and is available at Zara stores across UAE.
5 – Marks & Spencer Gladiator Sandals. Whilst wandering through Marks & Spencer in WAFI last week, my eye was drawn to these white gladiator sandals. They are the perfect way to stay on trend when keeping cool in a dress this summer. They cost AED 225 from Marks & Spencer stores across the UAE.
6 – Star Bedding Set. My obsession with star prints is going nowhere – and now even my bed can get a dose with this pretty dusty pink bed set from Notonthehighstreet.com. Now I just need to convince the husband… It costs £76 (about AED 460) – and it’s one for Shop & Ship, as international delivery is sadly not available.
